Most taxpayers Who Requested An Extension To File Their 2021 Tax Return Must File By Oct. 17

IRS reminds us that for taxpayers that did not file by April 15, 2022 and extended their 2021 filings to October 17, 2022 filing Form 4868 filing, this deadline is quickly approaching.  That this was an extension of time to file not to pay, as the payment penalty will not be postposed. However with the 2021 tax season deadline coming and going on October 17, 2022 taxpayers who reside outside the US may apply for a discretionary additional two month extension to December 15, 2022 under IRC §6081(a) and Regulations §1.6081-1(a).

Time is running out. The October 17 filing extension deadline is just days away. Most taxpayers who requested an extension of time to file their 2021 tax return must file by Monday to avoid the penalty for filing late. This year, the IRS received about 19 million requests for extensions to file until October 17 and urges people to file electronically.

Extension filers who owe taxes should pay as much as possible to reduce interest and penalties. Those who have yet to file a 2021 tax return, owe tax, and did not request an extension, can generally avoid additional penalties and interest by filing the return and paying any taxes owed as soon as possible.
